Dannyh, the only reason was PC gone mad lefty police chiefs and council leaders ?
It would be easy if reality was a simp!istic as that
These girls are from the shit end of society,the same people described as scum, chavs etc on the council house neigbours thread from yesterday
Their parents seem to have abandoned them or had them taken away, I believe most were in care, education and social services obviously hadn't done enough to protect them.
The police apparently had similar attitudes, untrustworthy, unreliable witnesses, not worth protecting, just chavs, skanks,slags, language you hear throughout society, scared of being called racist? I had no idea coppers are so delicate
And ultimately these mainly Pakistani men viewed them even less as people and more as objects.
Kimbers, from past experience you seem to be a functioning person with a mind of their own, so I'll try to get my point across to you at least.
I never said the perceived threat of being labelled racist due to 'PC gone mad' was the only reason.
The social circumstances of a lot of the victims and society's prejudiced (bitter irony here) attitudes towards them was a massive factor. Dare I say it, a bigger factor than the 'PC' issue. I would not deny that. If the victims had been from a more affluent background (irrespective of race), I doubt the lid would have been kept on for so long.
I haven't dismissed other factors at all.
I just cannot stand people turning arguments inside out to justify their own hang-ups and agendas whatever the context. That is dogma and zealotry, and it should be exposed to the ridicule it deserves.
